I've heard of the ACV. How much do you drink and what are the benefits?

So, I did it this morning....

I tried lemon water with ACV(apple cider vinegar)..let's just say, the jury is still out. My throat kinda hurts now. anybody else doing this?

BTW, I drink coffee every morning with chocolate collagen powder w/heavy whipping cream. It is delicious!! I carry a 750 ml pink bottle of water to work with me, and try to refill it a couple of times a day while at work. I really do try to be contentious every day on my water consumption. It is always right in front of me so that I don't get too busy and forget to drink.... emoticon

I can do this....I can do this.....I can...

Before dinner time, when I am home I drink a lot of water or tea. When it's time to eat, I am not really hungry and eat more slowly

I don't seem to have a problem drinking liquids as long as I can drink what I like, ice tea and my coffee in the mornings.

It's always hard for me to track exactly how much water I drink. For this challenge I am putting a 32 oz measuring pitcher in the fridge and drink two a day. Everything else is a bonus. It's working great! emoticon

I love water with ice. I bring a large jug of water to work and an insulated cup filled with ice. The ice lasts over 8 hours.

At home, I have a glass of ice water next to me as soon as I finish my coffee.

I get in 8 (8-ounce glass) glasses every day.

Water is my preferred drink. I drink a glass every time I brush my teeth, and 2 with each meal. I also keep a large glass by my chair and usually fill it twice a day.

Hey, Everyone. I just read a Sparks Article on what counts as water... And it looks like for hydration most liquids count.. But Good Old H2O emoticon is the best for you. So with that I get well over my liquid intake. But I like the taste of cold water I I drink four 16oz. bottles of Purified water with minerals added for taste.. I also recycle bottles for a healthier world. emoticon

I keep a small post it note paper on my kitchen counter that I log all of my water on. I drink from a 12 ounce glass and a 20 oz bottle. I usually don't have trouble drinking my water.

since stopping drinking soda's years ago it's been easier to drink water, now I've found a Contigo water bottle that to drink you have to press a button on the back side of the water bottle, and you can also lock it, so, I can wipe any excess water off the lip and toss it in my purse and it goes with me everywhere - literally! Plus, I like cold water, and it keeps the water super cold, ice lasts hours so I don't have to keep putting ice in it, it stays cold most of the night, too. I just sip all day long. It is 16 oz, so I know how many I need to drink to get in all of my H2O, but I usually drink more than that. I just don't keep counting after getting in my 64 oz.

I don't like drinking plain water so I add a half cup of pure, unsweetened cranberry juice (such as Knudson's) to a quart container and fill the rest with water. The cranberry helps promote kidney and bladder health. The rest of my waters are the plain water with which I take my AM and PM pills and green teas with lemon. I also can count the cranberry and lemon juice as a freggie serving for my seven a day.

Im by nature a water drinker and have no problems getting my water in. I use a large glass about 16 Oz. When we go somewhere I fill my water bottle and bring it along with me.

I am doing great on water. In fact I am getting a little nervous about diabetes or something. I drank 14 glasses yesterday. I usually drink 10

I have a large glass, big enough to hold 16 oz. on my desk at all times. If I am watching television it is on the end table. When I go out, I have a water bottle which holds 28 ounces or a Poland Springs with me.

I use the large glasses because it doesn't seem do overwhelming. 5 large glasses just seems do doable than 10 glasses. emoticon emoticon

Most days it has been easy for me, but sometimes (like yesterday!) it is really hard to get it down. When that happens I look for ways to make it a little different, like adding some lemon or cucumber to it. Crystal light also works if I get desperate, but I usually try to avoid artificial sweeteners if I can.
